Built for Modern Threading
SCHUNK paid attention to the market trends and has now released the brand new TB2 Chuck to support the highest demands every step of the way. With increased demands in pipe threading, pushing for more parts in less time, machine tools, today, have to support these modern machining requirements. In addition to faster production, the market calls for less maintenance, longer life, increased and more efficient cycles as well as safety.
The TB2 features faster actuation with its innovative exhaust system that allows for the quickest venting, ensuring decreased cycle times.
The life of the TB2 chuck is dramatically longer due to an exclusive coating that assures resistance to wear and virtually eliminates corrosion. In addition, the sealed base jaws eliminate contamination also increasing the life. To reduce maintenance, an advanced lubrication system allows for rapid and even lubrication of the entire chuck through an intelligent lubrication channel system.
As an important safety feature, the TB2 has several pressure and stroke monitoring features that allow monitoring via an external monitoring system as well as monitoring via a dynamic wireless system offering constant up-to-date feedback. Additionally, the TB2 has an integrated sound absorber system to reduce noise and hearing protection.
The TB2 is available in sizes from 470 mm to 1,000 mm with bore diameters from 185 mm to 560 mm. This chuck is interchangeable with all chucks and can fit on your machine today!
